Tram 28 Lisbon

Vintage trams take passengers on a scenic trip from the city center at sea level up through the narrow maze of streets towards St. George Castle.

The yellow tram 28 of Lisbon is one of the famous city icons. It is its route that makes it a highly popular way of transport for tourists.

On August 14, 1890, the first cable car went to Lisbon. A track gauge of 900 millimeters was chosen for this. With trams, except for Lisbon, this track gauge only occurs in Linz.

The first electric tram line was put into operation on August 31, 1901. The length of the net was 145 kilometers at the peak and there were 419 motor cars and 100 trailers. In the following years, the metro and bus increasingly took over the transport function of the trams and large parts of the tram network were closed.

Due to tourism, the importance of this historic tram increased again. Closure of the entire network was therefore no longer an issue. In addition, the trams often run through such narrow streets, where buses cannot even come.
